Interrim report on water fees

New work-in-progress report from the Future Hydro project cluster

The NRP 70 research project on the ‘Future of Swiss Hydropower’ is addressing the role of water fees and the impact of potential redesign options. A frist interim report shows the progress and findings so far highlighting the important role of market developments and their scope in relation to the role of water fees, as well as the large heterogeneity within Switzerland’s hydropower sector. In addition, the financial relation between companies, cantons, and municipalities adds a layer of complexity to the overall assessment.
